    when trying to install themes and plugins i get a ftp user prompt.
    after inputing ftp user info, i get an error stating that:

    Could not create directory. /var/www/wordpress/wp-content/upgrade

    wp-content has 777 permissions.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    what happens if you manually create the upgrade folder?

    also might want to look at

    Sounds like a permission issue on your server.

    I found this interesting tibdit when googling your error:

    ome plugins require the /wp-content/ folder be made writeable, but in such cases they will let you know during installation. In some cases, this may require assigning 755 permissions or higher (e.g. 777 on some hosts). The same is true for /wp-content/cache/ and maybe /wp-content/uploads/

    I manually created the subfolder "upgrade" but the system is then unable to create and subfolders from there for the plugins and or themes.

    Maybe you should try this:open your ftp configuration file,make #write_enable=YES to write_enable=YES.
